What do you think of our centerpieces

The theme of our reception is Masquerade and our colors are black and red. What do you think of the centerpieces we put together? Too kitschy with the mask? (Please excuse the laundry in the background haha)

  • beautiful!  As a guest it would be hard to restrain myself from playing with the mask.
  • Thank you. Hopefully they will just play with the masks we are providing for them to wear lol. I'm also considering hot gluing them to the flowers so that they can't be moved.

  • I love it! Perfect color choices! Red and black can be tacky, this is not.

  • Ooh! I love it!! =)  And I'm picky!
  • Love it!  Our colors are Red and Black, with a Red Rose Theme, its hard to find Red and Black themed Wedding Decor ideas without it having a 'goth' look.  I have similar centerpiece to this with the red floating candle, just a little different inside the glass.  Best wishes and happy planning!

  • Yay! I'm glad everyone is liking it. I really stressed about the centepieces. Thankfully my wonderful fiance came up with this idea. I was worried they were going to come off a little tacky, but apparently not. Thank you for the feed back everyone :)

  • I think your best tool for this was the tall vase, it balances every element you are using.

    <div>Thank you! We considered using 9" vases because they were a bit cheaper, but the 12" vases made it look much sleeker. They looked a bit stubby with the 9" vases.</div>

  • Beautiful! We are doing the same thing. Our colors are red/black and we are having a masquerade themed wedding reception. May I askwhere you bought your masks? We are looking to give them away as favors and are trying to find a place to buy the masks in bulk (either finished or DIY) for the cheapest price. Thanks!
    They look wonderful! :)
